Posted on 04/25/2014 4:11:15 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A well-known Saudi Islamic scholar has issued a fatwa (religious edict) prohibiting men from using a gold-plated mobile phone.
Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al Fowzan, a jurisprudence professor and member of the Saudi human rights commission, said women can use such handsets.
As for men, they are prohibited from using gold or gold-plated mobile handsets such handsets are allowed for women but not men, he said on his Twitter page in response to a query from a reader.
Saudi newspapers said Fowzans fatwa came as thousands of men in Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states started to opt for gold-plated mobile phones.
Falls into the category of “a special kind of stupid”.
Did Mohammed have an iphone or Blackberry? What a pickle!! It sucks to be a Muslim these days. I bet he used one of them to converse with the Angel Gabriel. BTW Is it in the Koran?
(Who wants to break the news to Mr. T?)
What, are you pro-metrosexual?
Didn't you know? Muslims invented the Cell phone, and the Wheel, and Space travel.
You can't tell by the way they live in the ME. Dirt floors and wiping their butts with
their hand is just a cover for their true intelligence.
i thought western technology was forbidden b/c of all the kaffir devils making it....

You need an iphone if you want to text teenage girls...
Next week he is taking on the skinny tie.
